Tips for Buying EarthBound

January 1st, 2015 | EarthBound, MOTHER 1, MOTHER 3, Videos

After a few weeks away I’m back and have a huge pile of things I need to update about 😯 First, though, is a set of videos published on Double Fine’s YouTube account about each of the games in the MOTHER series:

“Programmer on Costume Quest 2 and Mother superfan Ben Burbank shows off selected scenes from the entire trilogy and explains the complicated history of this beloved cult series. Featuring a mix of Japanese and English releases, fan translations, and imported hardware, Ben takes us on a journey through the bizarre cultural mashups and heartfelt story that define Mother.”

Ben Burbank’s a cool dude and he even popped up in some of our past Poemato CX streams to share inside info about his work. Anyway, here are the videos!

MOTHER 1 / EarthBound Zero:

MOTHER 2 / EarthBound:

EarthBound 64 + MOTHER 3 Game Boy Advance:

If you’ve got a few hours to spare, check ’em out! If you’re a huge fan of the series you might already know most of this stuff, but there might be other things in there that might be new too!

Thanks for the heads up! Speaking of Double Fine, I can’t wait to see what Tim Schafer has to say in his interview on the You Are Now EarthBound documentary.

  • 4am: Sometimes I wonder why after N64 mother 3 was permanently shelved, it ended up on GBA and not Gamecube.
  • asdf: I don’t think it looks better than the GBA game we got, but I’m definitely curious how different it would’ve turned out....
